Two Fun Music Venues..Usually I don't talk about music acts that have come and gone - like Johnny Rawls seen here - but the 18th Annual Blues Bash had a surprise venue that really was outstanding.
Jeanne, the founder of JB Pivot's, coined the phrase "Shut up and shag" 22 years ago and it's been a staunch supporter of beach music and the blues ever since.
Harriet bought the club 11 years ago and told the Blues Bash she wanted to be a major venue - booking acts all 10 nights. Wow. That's commitment to live music.
If you've never stopped by, check out the Beach Club on Savannah Highway (behind Shoney's). They teach dancing the Shag Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Another delightful venue is the Map Room on Sam Ritt.
Diverse bookings offer many surprises and on March 1 - every first Saturday of the month - get over there to enjoy the V Tones.
Bring the kids and let them run and dance as this zany crew brings back Vaudeville, the Roaring 20s, Klezmer and Ragtime.
Starting early (6:00 -9:00pm) they amuse and amaze with Kazoos, ukeleles, tap dancing and a drummer who plays a floor lamp.
Good family fare by a talented, offbeat group that's been around for years.
